Four people traveling on the Grand Central Parkway were seriously injured and two died after the driver lost control of the vehicle and crashed on June 29 at about 4 a.m, cops said.

The driver of the vehicle, Queens Village resident Madosh Hansraj, has been arrested and charged with two counts of manslaughter, one count of felony assault, two counts of criminally negligent homicide, illegal speed and speeding and driving while ability impaired, according to authorities.

His bail was set at $250,000, according to court records.

Hansraj, 20, lost control of the vehicle, identified as a 1996 Honda, when he tried to switch from the center lane to the right lane while traveling eastbound at high speed in the parkway, according to a police investigation. Cops said he tried to brake, which  caused the vehicle to slide off the roadway and bang into the railing.

Three of four people in the backseat were not wearing seat beats and flew through the rear window, the police said. Two of the ejected passengers, Meera Dukharan, 17, and  Anil Persaud, 18, were found dead on arrival at the scene.  The third has serious injuries.
